House of Gongs is a grassroots movement and learning space that honors both tradition and innovation in gong-row music. We cultivate artists from different backgrounds through studying, learning and/or practicing indigenous art forms from the Philippines and encourage them to bring the traditions into their own artistic creativity and experience. Classes are held on Saturday mornings available for workshops, group, semi-private, and private lessons. House of Gongs is the organizer of Gongsters Paradise, the first and only kulintang music festival in North America. It is a 4-hour concert of various artists who have interpreted kulintang music into their own artistic practice and genre. The space was founded by cultural practitioners, Ron Querian and Lydia Querian who find passion in indigenous knowledge, music, and traditions and are passionate about connecting with different tribal communities and their living master artisans all over the Philippines.
COVID-19: At the moment, we are offering online classes to individuals who are interested to learn kulintang. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for class inquiries and performance inquiries.
